Sysocmgr.exe tool you can add or remove Windows components.

Hi All,

I am trying to add "Management and Monitoring Tools" component using
Sysocmgr.exe with a script.

If you could help me on this, I really appreciate this.

This is very urgent

Re: Sysocmgr.exe tool you can add or remove Windows components.

It is pretty easy. You use a answer file that has an ini file format with a
Components section like an unattend.txt for example, to add all the
Management and Monitoring tools it would look like this

-->8
[Components]
Netoc=On
WbemMSI=1

[NetOptionalComponents]
NetCMAK=1
NetCPS=1
NetMonTools=1
SNMP=1
WBEMSNMP=1

-->8
Then follow this article about how to call it. These references were taken
from the ref.chm in the deploy.cab on the Windows Server CD

Re: Sysocmgr.exe tool you can add or remove Windows components.

Thank you so much for your great help. Now I have one more problem. When I
run the script, asking for the XP installation files. Can I also put this
path inside the script somehow ? Actually what we are trying to do is to
force this installation through AD.

Again thank you so much

The WbemMSI component should use a On | Off switch instead of 0 or 1. I used
Code:
[Components]
WbemMSI = 1
in c:\answer.txt and ran %windir%\system32\sysocmgr.exe /i:%windir%\inf\sysoc.inf /u:c:\answer.txt. The WMI windows installer provider was not installed. There is a page of all the components. Search for WbemMSI; it tells you WbemMSI = On | Off.
Code:
[Components]
WbemMSI = On
would be the correct answer file for installing WMI windows installer provider. by default, it's not installed on Windows server 2003.

Re: Sysocmgr.exe tool you can add or remove Windows components.

I was actually curious if anyone knew the answer to this question? I am having the same issue where i want to add the WMI Windows Information Provider on a 64-bit machine with sysocmgr.exe but it's asking for the files from the CD, i want to be able to do this through a batch file on a remote pc.

Re: Sysocmgr.exe tool you can add or remove Windows components.

Well, if it is asking for CD then it is working, but you need to have
the i386 folder copied in a location and registry path set.

Put the i386 folder from your Windows XP SP3 install location (or
Vista if you use Vista)

For example I put the i386 folder in the Windows folder so I use these
Registry keys once those files are in place.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup]
"SourcePath"="C:\\Windows"
"ServicePackSourcePath"="C:\\windows"
"CDInstall"=dword:00000000

Yes, you just create a batch file or manually go edit the registry key located at
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\Installation Sources

point this value to a network location where you have copied your windows files.
